New Inuyasha Chapter in February

Shogakukan has begun a new segment called "Hero's Comeback" where new content for a retired series is periodically published. A new stand-alone Inuyasha chapter will be published in the 2013-10 issue of Shounen Sunday, on 2/6/13. It will also be released as part of a compilation book with other authors in March, with proceeds going towards reconstruction of the areas affected by the March 2011 tsunami.

Kanketsu-hen Final Two Episodes to Premiere New BGM

Despite the majority of Inuyasha Kanketsu-hen relying on stock background music from the previous series, episodes 25 and 26 will contain all-new pieces written by Kaoru Wada, potentially making the final two episodes fully-scored with their own original soundtracks.

Character Song CD

Finally. For a series of the nature of Inuyasha, it's EXTREMELY surprising that something like this hasn't come out before now, but now a "Character Song Single CD" has been announced to be released on the 3rd of August.

Movie 4 Errata

Apparently those who get it early also get it wrong. The site that claimed that the fourth movie would go on sale in June was in error, and the date they gave was actually the rental date. The sale date of the fourth movie will again be in August, as it has been in the past.

PS2 Fighting Game Release

The upcoming PS2 fighting game is going to get a rather quick release to the states, with a tentative American release date of sometime in August, bearing the title "Inuyasha Feudal Combat". No specifics on a Japanese release have been given yet, though the rumored release date there is June 16th.

April Fool's

Yeah, that time of year again. ^_^* Yesterday the site boasted a bit of fake information, including all the news one the main page, the summary and review of chapter 403, and the set of "Dear Papa" responses (not that they were "fake", they were just the set that would have otherwise been skipped this week). Everything is back to normal now, and the April Fool's site has been archived here.

Fourth Movie DVD

The Japanese release of the fourth movie, "Guren no Hourai-jima", to DVD will be June 10th. This is apparently the release for SALE rather than rental, which is two months earlier than the normal August releases for the previous movies.

New Episodes on Adult Swim

Hey, less than a month before their premiere, we finally have a date (which, knowing Cartoon Network, is naturally subject to change). The dub Inuyasha episodes will pick up with episode 79 on Monday, January 10th. New episodes will run three days a week, Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.

A two-disc compilation of the best BGM from the TV series and movies will be released on March 16th. From December 24th to January 9th, there will be a survey held where people can vote for which tracks they want on the CD.

Adult Swim Schedule Change (again)

Starting November 11th, Thursdays will become "Premiere Repeat Nights", which will re-run the new episodes of Fullmetal Alchemist and Ghost in the Shell that premiered the previous Saturday. Doing this deletes a day from the weekday run, making it so the Inuyasha weekday run will not reach episode 79 until January 5th, when new episodes will start airing Monday-Wednesday.
Source: Adult Swim Boards

Adult Swim Scheduling

The premieres of new Inuyasha episodes on Saturdays will end on October 16th with episode 78, at which point the series will leave Saturday. The show will continue in reruns during the weekdays up through episode 78 again, which will air December 21st. At that point, the premieres will return with episode 79 on December 22nd and continue with the new episodes on weekdays. The first and second movies will show in the spring and summer of 2005, respectively.

Movie 1 Delayed on Cartoon Network

In a not terribly surprising announcement, the TV broadcast of the first movie has been pushed to spring of 2005, due to requirements of how long a movie has to be on DVD before it is broadcast on television.

Openings and Endings on Adult Swim

No, Adult Swim still won't be showing the original openings when the new episodes premiere, but since there's been a lot of complaints about it, they've decided to host all the deleted opening and ending sequences on their website, including some that haven't aired yet. Currently available for Inuyasha are the first four openings (including "Grip!" with the English intro narration), and endings 1, 2, 4, and 5. So, if you've only seen the series on AS and want to see what they're cutting, or if you're just really curious to hear that dubbed intro to "Grip!", the intros/outros can be found in the "Other" category of the "Clips" section.
